I was suffering from reduced jaw opening and in constant severe pain. Until I met Mr Cascarini, I was beginning to suffer at work and avoiding social get togethers. He gave me the confidence that he could help me. I’m now 4 weeks post-surgery, having had an arthroscopy with BMAC and I am so grateful to Mr Cascarini, his surgical skills and knowledge regarding the TMJ is unquestionable. My recovery process is still in its early days, but I am now relatively pain free, sleeping at night and my jaw opening has doubled, thus allowing me to eat.
I had a long history of pain since May 2020 when I developed toothache, ear pain and my face became swollen on one side. My dentist diagnosed bruxism (where you grind, gnash or clench your teeth sometimes in your sleep or unconsciously). Having seen Mr Cascarini, I wouldn’t go to anyone else. He is phenomenal very easy to relate to, he understands and is straightforward, an extraordinary man who has given me my life back. Morea and his team have also been amazing and gave me the reassurance I needed.
From the moment I walked into Mr Cascarini’s office I felt I was in safe hands, he made me feel like finally someone understood. He explained my options and I never once felt pressured into having any of the procedures. After the initial healing from surgery I can honestly say I have never felt better, I can eat normally, smile normally and most importantly I feel no pain, Mr Cascarini is a superhero in disguise and someone who I will be eternally grateful too. Thank you!
I would say to anyone suffering with TMJ conditions is please trust that there is a solution! I was completely floored when the NHS told me I had no chance of going back to a normal pain free life. Mr Cascarini not only gave me hope but he followed through and saved me from having to have complete jaw replacement! He is a professional, knowledgeable, and genuinely nice; I cannot thank him or recommend him enough for his innovative and live saving BMAC treatment.
I would advise anyone with similar concerns to go and see Mr Cascarini. He has a very reassuring manner about him and is very pleasant and easy to talk to. He exudes experience and professionalism – essentially all you want when you go to see someone with a health concern. Whilst I was pleased to have been given the all-clear, I got the feeling that if there had been something wrong, Mr Cascarini would have handled it very well. He’s obviously very good at what he does.
I didn’t really have any choice but to have the operation as I couldn’t continue as it was. It sounded pretty dramatic when it was explained to me what was to be done and was rather more than I expected (I thought the tumour would just be removed) but in fact it has turned out very well. I wouldn’t hesitate to commend Mr Cascarini for the way he did this and the operation has been a real success. Others, if concerned, needn’t be if my experience is anything to go by.
My jaw feels amazing now, I get no pain or stiffness which is great. I would highly recommend Botox injections to people experiencing similar problems. I have noticed a huge difference and I get no complaints from my partner about my grinding! I am a very happy customer!
Don’t give up hope, see Mr Cascarini as he is literally the best. He gave me hope where I had no hope. He is very professional but also friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend BMAC, friends I have on the facebook group for TMJ conditions can’t believe how amazing I look after 3 weeks.
No words can explain how much I want to thank Mr Cascarini. He made the whole thing less scary and I never felt what I was going on was as enormous as it in fact was. When you walk into his clinic you are 100% his focus. Anyone who gets to see him should consider themselves extremely lucky. Please go to the dentist, if I hadn’t, my tumour wouldn’t have been spotted and I may not have been so fortunate to have made a full recovery.
Amazing surgeon, wonderful Doctor. Any patient will be in excellent experienced hands!!
